An intriguing image showing Grimwood the builder's house and drawing office on the right - much as the house is today. On the left a mysterious structure, presumably erected after the fire on this site which happened just before the Great War. Its purpose?? One memory suggests that the top floor was demolished but the ground floor was still in use in the 1960s. Today it is the site of Weavers Court.

The market town of Sudbury, on the borders of Suffolk and Essex, has a long and fascinating history. Much of the way of life in the town since the invention of photography has been caught on camera. The Sudbury Museum Trust has developed this website to show and provide information on a selection of these photographs.
